Miss Lilly’s Kitchen is a pot of gold at the end of the King Street rainbow.
It’s hard not to be attracted to Miss Lilly’s Kitchen’s bright yellow colour scheme on Newtown’s King Street, offering nothing short of glowing life to the strip. Stuart, owner and chef, has been selling his creations at the Bondi Beach and Warriewood markets for four years. But when he found himself outgrowing his production kitchen he knew it was a sign it take the plunge to open his own shop front. Thanks to the hard work of Stuart and partner Richelle, we can now all enjoy, what is the cutest and most colourful bakery, ever, Miss Lilly’s Kitchen.
Stuart and Richelle clearly have an eye for detail. From the enamel crockery, to the wedge of lemon in the chilled table water. Every item found within the bright yellow walls seems to have been thoughtfully selected to create their dream shop.
Here you’ll find as selection of sweet and savoury pies, pastries and cakes. As for the drinks, there’s coffee, tea, organic sodas and even house made kombucha.
The pastries in the cabinet alternate daily except for the famous kale and feta roll which is permanent on the list. Staurt says, “I don’t like to talk myself up, but I can’t argue that the Kale and Feta roll is delicious”. It’s been a crowd favourite for years now and is a reason enough to visit the shop.
There is a daily cake special which is dependent on what fresh produce is in season at the markets where Stuart picks up his supplies. “For example, figs are in season at the moment so tomorrow will be a fig and raspberry tart” Stuart tells us.
On the sweet side, they offer treats like a sour cherry pie, choc peanut butter cheesecake, lemon curd and almond cake and more. Whilst you can eat in or takeaway, it’s worth propping yourself up on the long wooden table to enjoy your treats with a coffee.
Miss Lilly’s kitchen is advertised as open Wed-Sun 8am to 3pm, however due to a rush for later afternoon pastries their closing times are flexible. If you’re lucky, you might even find them still open on your way home from work.
